January 2011

It's been about seven months since my last post. A lot of new changes since . I haven't had any more visits to the hospital, but I have had one major episode that made me want to. In October, we anxiously awaited to find out if Baby #3 was on the way and on our son's 4th birthday, we got the big news. We are extremely excited for the arrival of our third child in June. This means I have cut back my medication. I actually went off of it completely in August because we anticipated a third pregnancy and I did pretty well, not having to take any TN meds. I did notice more burning sensations or the feeling of being socked in the jaw. In the end, I've been taking one dose of each med each morning. I've learned that going off of the meds entirely is just not an option - especially after the last major episode.

I hope these updates are helping those who are looking for Trigeminal Neuralgia information. I'll do my best to post them consistently.

Stumbled across your blog tonight. I too suffer from TN & had a successful MVD in July '09. I think it's starting to come back -- have had a few minor twinges in my mouth daily the last several weeks but trying really hard not to let it get me down. I think after surgery I had PTSD for months just waiting for another strike.

Hoping you are still managing the pain and the pregnancy is going well. Best wishes!!
